Toys 4 Kids

Toys 4 Kids logoTEAM has run the Toys 4 Kids holiday toy drive program for more than 20 years. Toys 4 Kids collects new, unwrapped toys during November and December each year and distributes those toys as holiday gifts to needy children in the community. The success of the program relies on volunteer support and community involvement. Each year with the help of the community, TEAM supplies toys to over 1,700 children; this could not be done without the help of the volunteers, collection sites and the contributions received from generous community members.

Toys are dropped off at designated TEAM Toys 4 Kids Drop Collection Sites throughout the community. Boxes are made available at these locations from mid-November until approximately one week before Christmas. The toys are transported to a Toy Workshop where volunteers sort and classify toys by price, age, and gender. TEAM’s Toys 4 Kids program differs from other holiday toy drives because parents are not simply handed a random toy based on gender and age group; parents are able to shop for their children, making selections based on their child’s interests. Families are provided with “Toy Bucks” to shop for 4 toys for each child.
